"But I thought the lads showed great professionalism, their application was spot on and we got what we deserved.
"JD, typical JD. Fantastic movement on the shoulder, terrific finish with the left foot and it was a moment of class to get us up and running.
"Second one, a set-piece, fantastic header by Cedric, and then Calvin follows in for his first goal, he's delighted.
"Then the third one is obviously a moment of genius by Borna, that technique is very difficult to get up and down but he's proven he's done it before so hopefully there's many more of them to come.
"And then James shows what place he's in. He leads by example and he goes and finishes the game off with a terrific volley.

"The challenge and the aim is to go all the way.
"Doesn't matter who is in the competition, who has been knocked out. It's about Rangers trying to compete for silverware year in, year out.
"That's what it's about."
